CZOData CyberSeminars

Presentations and conversations describing the Integrated CZO Data system and how to use it -  for interested CZO investigators, students & staff.

These cyber-seminars inform the broad CZ Science and Informatics communities about the evolving CZO Data System.  They also provide specific training and tutorials to CZO Investigators and Data Managers on how to use the CZO Data System

ARCHIVED CONTENT:These seminars are associated with cyberinfrastructure for the CZOData project, which ended in early 2016



A series of two-hour consultations will be held for the CZOData team (3-4 of its members) and individual CZOs (CZO PI, IMC Faculty Reps, Data & Web Managers, et al).  These 1:1 consultations will focus on sharing data.  Topics include: Datasets on, YODA files, Vocabularies, IGSN, Geospatial, LiDAR, Data DOI, ODM2, and Streaming data (see guidelines on these topics). An agenda is outlined in the news story  "CZOData Consultations, Fall 2015".   Everyone on the CZO Information Management Committee (CZO-IMC) will be invited to listen in on all 1:1 consultations, to promote sharing of our various approaches.  The consultations will be recorded.  Select an individual consultation for more information and recordings.

Video tutorials for adding and editing website content via the Content Management System (CMS) have been available since mid 2012. CZO personnel with login access to the system have been given links to the tutorials.  In the future, however, we may make it easier to see the videos by posting them on a web page accessible after login.
